Simulation modelling has a key role to play in enabling decision making in dynamic manufacturing organisations. However in general the complexity levels involved necessitate multiple simulation levels to be systematically developed and deployed. This paper describes a new systematic approach to creating coherent sets of simulation models that can interoperate to replicate and predict changing organisational behaviours.
